The aim of the event is to present the evidence how social protection contributes to achieving the Global Gateway Investment Package goals. After an introduction, INTPA G4 (social protection thematic section) will present its approach to the new generation of social protection programs and INTPA's input to the latest international developments in this area. This is then followed by an expert's analysis on Strengthening the Africa-EU Partnership in Social Protection through the Global Gateway Africa-Europe Investment package, highlighting international best practice and challenges, #Team Europe efforts and proposing several entry points how social protection can help achieve the goals of the Global Gateway Investment Package.
Social Protection systems stimulate economic growth by increasing consumption, enable universal access to education, health care and empower women. It is a fundamental part of "Decent Work'. It ensures basic income for the elderly and the unemployed; it can build resilience and helps accelerate the response to various shocks. It supports digital transformation in setting standards for social protection ecosystems to make them interoperable and future-proof. This will be followed by sharing viewpoints from representatives from an EU MS, an EU Delegation and from a private sector perspective.
